Silversea Expedition Cruises To TALBOT BAY, Kimberley (Western Australia)

Talbot Bay is famous for the Horizontal Falls which have been described as “one of the greatest natural wonders of the world“. The region’s tides of close to 36 feet create an amazing spectacle when the water tries to enter or leave Poulton Creek through two very narrow openings located one behind the other in the McLarty Ranges. Water builds up faster on one side than it can flow through the gaps, leaving or entering depending on the tide. View more

This incredible tidal power can be experienced firsthand by boarding a local 900hp fast boat and taking an exhilarating ride through the Horizontal Waterfalls.

Continue along here for about 1km before it starts descending. On the way look for siler gulls, sulphur-crested cockatoo and bush-wallabies. Once at the beach, enjoy a relaxed swim to cool down before heading back. Water shoes should be worn as there is a rocky sea bottom.

The Buccaneer Archipelago has of over 800 islands and was created millions of years ago by erosion-causing tidal changes. The region's tides present amazing spectacles that can create seemingly horizontal waterfalls at Talbot Bay. Watch reefs and islands come out of the ocean, only to have them disappear before your eyes again.

The Horizontal Falls is a natural phenomenon where you can experience this incredible tidal power firsthand. Board a 900-horsepower fast boat (the fastest boat in the Kimberley region) and let the highly experienced skippers take you for an exhilarating ride through the Horizontal Waterfalls. Reasonable mobility and fitness are required as the ride will be rapid and bumpy at times.

Your 900 horsepower Fast Boat will pull along-side your ship and take you for the ride of a lifetime. The Horizontal Falls are an incredible natural phenomenon where the tidal force is so strong, that when it moves through a gorge, it creates a waterfall-like effect. On board the fastest boat in the Kimberleys let the highly experienced skippers take you for an incredible ride through the Horizontal Waterfalls.



Please note: This tour requires minimal activity. However, due to the speed and movement of the boat, this tour is not suitable for those who utilise a wheelchair, those with back problems and women who are pregnant.
